Home Business Congressional Elections Matter

Congressional Elections Matter


As a business owner, you may be wondering how the elections will impact the economy, trade agreements and interest rates. Much attention is on the presidential race, but pay attention to the Congressional races, too.

The makeup of Congress matters because during the next four years Congress will decide the next Federal Reserve chair and could potentially vote on Supreme Court justices. Republicans control both the House and Senate, but the election has the potential to shift control.

Also needed: a strong speaker who can work effectively with both sides to get legislation passed. That would be a nice concept.
